Harborough, Oadby & Wigston Wants to Stay in the EU

Harborough polling for EU MembershipA Populus poll has shown that voters in Harborough, Oadby and Wigston now support our continued membership of the European Union.

The poll of over 8,000 people across the UK was then analysed to predict opinion in each constituency. A similar method successfully predicted the result of the last US Presidential election in 50 out of 51 States.

The poll shows that our area would now vote 53% to continue our European Union membership, up from 48% in 2016.

The change shows that local people have had enough of the Brexit mess and uncertainty. Over the last 3 years, we have seen more about what our country gains from our European Union membership: free trade, security, peace, action on the environment and economic prosperity. And all this for 1% of government spending.

The poll was taken before this week's huge defeat of Theresa May's Brexit Deal. If you think Brexit is the wrong choice for the future of our country, please support the Liberal Democrats' call for a Peoples Vote, with the choice to call off Brexit and continue our European Union membership
